Billie Eilish Stars in Up in the Air
In her role as the character Blanche in the film Up in the Air, Billie Eilish really put the experience of being a foster child into practice. Now, all you parents out there need to watch this movie. I know I did and I’m hoping you will as well.
I was lucky enough to grow up in a family that didn’t really put much pressure on me to go to college or do something that I wasn’t interested in. My parents went to college for them. As an adult I’ve seen other people struggle with situations similar to mine and I just wanted to help. I want to help everyone in need and this movie just hit the spot for me. This might not work for everyone, but I’m pretty sure it worked for me.
There are three major characters in this film. They are Blanche, a single mother who spends a lot of time raising her son, Tyler, and is concerned about the state of the country’s economy; a fellow foster parent, Evelyn, who are starting a small fish-out-of-water-wonderland-type business and are fed up with not making any money; and, finally, the godfather, Sean, played by Jeff Bridges. The main theme of the film is centered around the theme of parents’ love and what it takes to make a child feel loved and cared for.
The performances were all top notch and Billie Eilish’s character’s name is based on one of her children’s names. She plays two different characters in the film, both of which are named after actual children who have passed away.
The young actors played their parts quite well. However, I think one of the standout performers in the movie was Anya Taylor-Joy who is also in the upcoming movie The Witch. I love watching her in movies and television shows. This is no exception and I’m glad she gets to have fun while she’s doing it.
Blanche was one of my favorite roles in the movie. She’s a single mom and I felt for her because I know how hard it is to get a child on your own, but she seems to be able to keep a steady job and take care of herself and her child. But, all of her efforts seem to be for naught when Evelyn decides to run off with a man who’s supposed to be out of a job.
The story is very simple, but you can tell that writer Rebecca Osmond put a lot of thought into the script, as it’s clear that she really wants to tell a moving story. That’s why I love reading her work and I hope that her future projects are of the same caliber.
Overall, Up in the Air is a fun, entertaining, and good movie. The actor Billie Eilish doesn’t win any awards for this movie, but she steals every scene that she’s in and it’s obvious that she’s loving every minute of it.
